Fodor's Review

A veritable architectural extravaganza of Edwardian exoticism, the baroque-style theater has a magnificent auditorium and a rooftop glass dome with a bar and great views. As one of the city's most venerable theaters, the Coliseum functions mainly as the home of the English National Opera which continues to produce innovative opera, sung in English, for lower prices than the Royal Opera House. During opera's off-season, the house hosts the English National Ballet ( Guided tours are on alternate Saturdays at 11 am, plus the occasional Thursday and Friday, when productions are scheduled).
